Where it all started

Inverurie Beer Festival was founded of the back of Banchory Beer Festival,which started in 2014 by two local Banchory brothers Mungo & Guy Finlayson, who have a passion for good food & drink and wanted to bring something new to the Deeside area.

MFGF Events Ltd the events company the brothers founded to run the festivals has only grown from strength to strength after it's launched back in April 2014. The idea was brain stormed one winter night in early 2014 and eventually became a reality when they founded the company at companies’ house on the 1st of April 2014.

  • Role: Director of Bars
  • Favourite Drink: Anything Guy doesn't like

Andy is well Andy, he’s the one you’ll see managing the beer & cider bar. With the official title of Director of Bar Building. Three years ago the Finlayson brothers roped him in to build a bar and three years later he’s still doing it and is now officially part of the management team. Together with Louis he manages the practical side of the festival set-ups. During the festivals he’s either got his head stuck behind the beer bar or apparently trying to find a Finlayson. In great team spirit claims his favorite drink is anything Guy doesn’t like. During his spare time Andy enjoys quaint evenings in his canoe on Loch Skene……. alone or accompanied!
